Cate Blanchett In Altuzarra – Late Show with David Letterman

Cate Blanchett In Altuzzara - Late Show with David Letterman

Cate Blanchett was spotted outside the Ed Sullivan Theater in New York City yesterday afternoon prior to her guest appearance on the ‘Late Show with David Letterman’.

The Australian actress wore a black dress from Altuzarra’s Fall 2013 collection.

At first glance this may appear to be a classic LBD with a v-neckline, but if you look closely you can see that the bodice seaming of her crepe dress forms a decorative pattern which resembles Thierry Mugler’s famous motorcycle bustier and panels on the skirt.

I love that when it comes to any type of look, even an LBD, Cate always gives us something just that little bit extra.

Gold long bar earrings and Nicholas Kirkwood open-toe sandals with pearl accents in the platform completed her flawless look.

Trust Cate to make me fall in love with an LBD.

    She looks gorgeous, he has an amazing figure and this dress is perfect for her.
    I don’t like the shoes though.

      +1, really dislike the footwear. A shame, love her hair and carriage, which transform an otherwise unremarkable LBD into something fabulous.

        Funny, I was just thinking how much I love the shoes, and thanking heaven she didn’t wear plain ‘old black pumps! She never gives us plain ‘old anything. J’adore H2T!

    Cate Blanchett oozes ladylike sophistication no matter what she wears. This dress looks fantastic. I don’t think I like the shoes, though they look quite interesting.

    This needs a more statement shoe and wrist accessories would’ve really set off the look.

    Regal. Love the detail on the bodice. Can’t wait to know your thoughts on her premiere dress.

  7. Cass July 23, 2013 at 13:21 #

    Love the shoes

  8. Markness July 23, 2013 at 13:43 #

    I’m not crazy about the shoes. But she is on a roll! I love her. :)

  9. Moxie July 23, 2013 at 15:21 #

    Simple and chic.

  10. Daisy July 23, 2013 at 17:20 #

    She has no sex appeal to me

  11. Christopher July 23, 2013 at 19:03 #

    She looks very beautiful and sophisticated in this dress. I specially love the shoes and the roger vivier bag she used after taping the show.

    • KatieKate July 24, 2013 at 00:04 #

      Thank you, finally someone else likes the shoes!

  12. Tatiana July 23, 2013 at 19:04 #

    Gorgeous as always. She looks amazing and perfect indeed.

  13. Gwen July 23, 2013 at 19:07 #

    I particularly love the detail in the bodice and that she decided to styled her look in a sleek way.

  14. Emma July 23, 2013 at 19:10 #

    Cate is so gorgeous, poised and classy that is impossible for her to look bad.

  15. Namel July 24, 2013 at 00:46 #

    Her simplest are her greatest. She looks gorgeous. I ADORE the earrings with this look. The shoes look a bit boxy in this picture but they look great in other photos. She looks like a classy combination of a spy and a superhero. BDOTW worthy.
